1 Chronicles 24

GNT 1 These are the groups to which the descendants of Aaron belong. Aaron had four sons: Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. NIV 1 These were the divisions of the descendants of Aaron: The sons of Aaron were Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. GNT 2 Nadab and Abihu died before their father did, and left no descendants, so their brothers Eleazar and Ithamar became priests. NIV 2 But Nadab and Abihu died before their father did, and they had no sons; so Eleazar and Ithamar served as the priests. GNT 3 King David organized the descendants of Aaron into groups according to their duties. He was assisted in this by Zadok, a descendant of Eleazar, and by Ahimelech, a descendant of Ithamar. NIV 3 With the help of Zadok a descendant of Eleazar and Ahimelek a descendant of Ithamar, David separated them into divisions for their appointed order of ministering. GNT 4 The descendants of Eleazar were organized into sixteen groups, while the descendants of Ithamar were organized into eight; this was done because there were more male heads of families among the descendants of Eleazar. NIV 4 A larger number of leaders were found among Eleazar’s descendants than among Ithamar’s, and they were divided accordingly: sixteen heads of families from Eleazar’s descendants and eight heads of families from Ithamar’s descendants. GNT 5 Since there were Temple officials and spiritual leaders among the descendants of both Eleazar and Ithamar, assignments were made by drawing lots. NIV 5 They divided them impartially by casting lots, for there were officials of the sanctuary and officials of God among the descendants of both Eleazar and Ithamar. GNT 6 The descendants of Eleazar and of Ithamar took turns drawing lots. Then they were registered by Shemaiah son of Nethanel, a Levite secretary. The king, his officials, the priest Zadok, Ahimelech son of Abiathar, and the heads of the priestly families and of the Levite families, were all witnesses. NIV 6 The scribe Shemaiah son of Nethanel, a Levite, recorded their names in the presence of the king and of the officials: Zadok the priest, Ahimelek son of Abiathar and the heads of families of the priests and of the Levites—one family being taken from Eleazar and then one from Ithamar. GNT 7 This is the order in which the twenty-four family groups were given their assignments: 1) Jehoiarib; 2) Jedaiah; 3) Harim; 4) Seorim; 5) Malchijah; 6) Mijamin; 7) Hakkoz; 8) Abijah; 9) Jeshua; 10) Shecaniah; 11) Eliashib; 12) Jakim; 13) Huppah; 14) Jeshebeab; 15) Bilgah; 16) Immer; 17) Hezir; 18) Happizzez; 19) Pethahiah; 20) Jehezkel; 21) Jachin; 22) Gamul; 23) Delaiah; 24) Maaziah. NIV 7 The first lot fell to Jehoiarib, the second to Jedaiah, GNT 19 These men were registered according to their assignments for going to the Temple and performing the duties established by their ancestor Aaron in obedience to the commands of the Lord God of Israel. NIV 19 This was their appointed order of ministering when they entered the temple of the LORD, according to the regulations prescribed for them by their ancestor Aaron, as the LORD, the God of Israel, had commanded him. GNT 20 These are other heads of families descended from Levi: Jehdeiah, a descendant of Amram through Shebuel; NIV 20 As for the rest of the descendants of Levi: from the sons of Amram: Shubael; from the sons of Shubael: Jehdeiah. GNT 21 Isshiah, a descendant of Rehabiah; NIV 21 As for Rehabiah, from his sons: Ishiah was the first. GNT 22 Jahath, a descendant of Izhar through Shelomith; NIV 22 From the Izharites: Shelomoth; from the sons of Shelomoth: Jahath. GNT 23 Jeriah, Amariah, Jehaziel, and Jekameam, sons of Hebron, in order of age; NIV 23 The sons of Hebron: Jeriah the first, Amariah the second, Jahaziel the third and Jekameam the fourth. GNT 24 Shamir, a descendant of Uzziel through Micah; NIV 24 The son of Uzziel: Micah; from the sons of Micah: Shamir. GNT 25 Zechariah, a descendant of Uzziel through Isshiah, Micah's brother; NIV 25 The brother of Micah: Ishiah; from the sons of Ishiah: Zechariah. GNT 26 Mahli, Mushi, and Jaaziah, descendants of Merari. NIV 26 The sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi. The son of Jaaziah: Beno. GNT 27 Jaaziah had three sons: Shoham, Zaccur, and Ibri. NIV 27 The sons of Merari: from Jaaziah: Beno, Shoham, Zakkur and Ibri. GNT 28 Mahli had two sons, Eleazar and Kish. Eleazar had no sons, but Kish had one son, Jerahmeel. NIV 28 From Mahli: Eleazar, who had no sons. GNT 30 Mushi had three sons: Mahli, Eder, and Jeremoth. These are the families of the Levites. NIV 30 And the sons of Mushi: Mahli, Eder and Jerimoth. These were the Levites, according to their families. GNT 31 The head of each family and one of his younger brothers drew lots for their assignments, just as their relatives, the priests descended from Aaron, had done. King David, Zadok, Ahimelech, and the heads of families of the priests and of the Levites were witnesses. NIV 31 They also cast lots, just as their relatives the descendants of Aaron did, in the presence of King David and of Zadok, Ahimelek, and the heads of families of the priests and of the Levites. The families of the oldest brother were treated the same as those of the youngest.
